Broken glass in 15-lite patio door

My patio door assembly has one right-hand in-swing door and the other is stationary.

The double pane glass of the in-swing door has been knocked out. Its a 15-lite door with an external grille.

I would like to replace the door just to be done with it but the size is non-standard. The slab measures are 34.5 x 77in.

I'm inclined to give replacing the glass a go but I'm unsure how successful I could be. I worry doing so means I'll see evidence of trapped moisture in a week; the humidity here is very high.

Any suggestions where to find such a door? There are no apparent markings to determine the manufacturer.

All help is appreciated.

I would contact a glass installer and have him order a custom IGU for the door. Much cheaper than replacing the entire odd sized door, which would fall into custom build as well.

You can order a replacement IGU and grille at almost any Home Center or door supplier. That's assuming that this is a plastic grille frame held together with screws on the inside. The frame and glass units are only made by a couple of suppliers and are pretty interchangeable. Measure the outside to outside dimensions of the frame and the visible glass area. Basically, even though it's a custom door, it's not a custom glass unit. They make them all the same height and either 20" or 22" wide IIRC.
